1.21 Progress

Thank you for all the details on the signs bug! It’s great to have many testers.

With so much information I was easily able to reproduce and fix it, so from 1.21 on, the signs text input should work properly without need to restart the game.

I also reproduced and fixed the bug with getting stuck on stairs. This one was more subtle and I am not 100% confident the fix covers all possibilities. I’m not able to reproduce it any more with the fix in, so I’ll assume it’s gone until proven otherwise.

But the bugs work has only taken less than 10% of my time over the past couple of days. The rest I spent working on a new game mechanic to do with new animals, which you haven’t seen yet. It’s about 50% ready, and will be the highlight feature of 1.21.

I’ll leave you to guess what it is for now, but it’s been requested many times and ticks all boxes on my list :-)

      This is my guess what it is. Transportation, multiplayer, pistons, villagers, or taming animals.

    Hi Kaalus,
    I think you should add a device for the automatic ignition block or mobs=)
    Think about it!!!

    • Posted February 28, 2013 at 10:34 | Permalink | Reply

      Actually,this can be done siing detonators,since they dont break blocks that are strong.Just place a coal block in front of a detonator,i tried it,it works,it ignites the coal block.

    Have you ever considered adding Bigfoot/Sasquatch to the game? I know your going for a more realistic approach but as it turns out Bigfoot might be real. Here’s a link to one of the sites I was reading.

          Logically noone will do that,not even even Notch.That would make the game too easy,thats why there were mods,there are no official elevators in any Sandbox survival games.

      No offense, but you misspelled offense and greatest and left out an apostrophe in “that’s” and a comma in between offense and but. You also forgot to capitalize the “n” in “No” and forgot to end your sentence. You do not have the intelligence to criticize my ideas.
